Warning – MySpace Music accounts are for MUSICIANS. Uploading songs you do not own is a violation of the artist’s copyrights and against the law. If you upload songs you do not own, you account will be deleted.
If you would like to show support for a musical group or artist, create a fan club in our GROUP section here.
These are the rules posted on MySpace. I am guessing that the person who set up the Ottmar Liebert MySpace account, let’s call him E., pretended to be me in order to get a free musician’s account on MySpace. I believe that his intention was simply to let people hear my music and send them to my web site. I had no problem with that and did not contact MySpace, but either somebody else protested or the MySpace police found out that Ottmar Liebert on MySpace was a fan site and not a musician’s site and deleted the account yesterday evening. I then opted to claim a new account in my name before someone else did.
To tell you the truth, I am not sure what to do with the new MySpace account. I do not want to take the time to update it often, and I don’t want to deal with adding friends, which seems to be a really big deal on MySpace: how many friends do You have?
In any case, I am leaning towards putting up a couple of photos and some music and otherwise just linking to this Diary. Of course, if I had kept my big mouth shut, E. would still be taking care of the Ottmar Liebert MySpace and this chain of events would not have happened. Silence is golden.
